Arun Advani

I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at the University of Warwick. I am also a Research Fellow at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, a Visiting Fellow at the International Inequalities Institute, Research Associate of the CAGE Research Centre, Inequalities theme leader at the Warwick Brain Behaviour and Society GRP, and a member of the Skills and Productivity Board.

I study issues of inequality, tax compliance, and tax design, with a focus on those with high incomes or wealth. I am a Commissioner at the Wealth Tax Commission. I also work on issues of environmental taxation, economic development, migration, and tax in low- and middle-income countries.

I am co-chair of the Discover Economics campaign, aiming to increase the diversity of people who study and work in economics. I'm also on the Editorial Board of the Economics Observatory.
